Russ appreciated the steady work that <i>Star Trek: Voyager</i> offered and the fact that it made it easier to be more selective in what he chose when offered other roles. "Being on the show for those seven years did have an effect on me in the fact that it made me more secure in my career," he said. "I didn't have to worry so much about getting the next job, and could pick and choose offers that came my way.
I saw Russ on an episode of Hannah Montana that my daughter forced me to watch. He had a walk-on role as a doctor making a housecall. If that's being selective, rock on, Russ!
